I thought the explanation for why education & medical costs are the only ones to continue going up without even a blip, was very interesting .. that they're 2 things that can't be exported.
I think they may also be the last bastion of "brainwashing" (too strong a word, but the one that comes to mind now) & control; the concept that ALL kids have to go to college to get a good job .. and an ivy league school is a must in some families, the idea that colleges MUST pay their administrators ridiculously high salaries, that it's reasonable for textbooks to cost > $100, that medical tests should cost as much as they do, or that medical offices need staffs that are probably 5 or more times the size they were 10 years ago!
